after romance

travelling
alongside
besides
despite
the otherness

a space evolves
defined by
compatability
deference
a refined form of care
that hovers
over the great spaces
of lives
lived
alongside
besides
despite
the otherness
of each other

I can see clouds from my hospital window, Steven, not as lovely as these here. Here in this place of alleged care your words,' a refined form of care' jump out at me.

I've yet to see the surgeon who will decide my fate, whether I need surgery or whether I can go home in plaster and with crutches. Two days after the event. He has rooms here and yet he hasn't come to tell me what goes. This is one of the aspects of the medical establishment, I despise. The tendency to keep people waiting.

As my husband says if he kept people waiting as long, he'd be without a job.

Sorry to gripe on but I feel imprisoned and beholden to the whims of others. Not a comfortable position.

Thanks Steven.

I think this highlights the wisdom of tolerance...

A pair can still wander lonely as a cloud.

Wow. Despite it all, yes!

If only we could expand that to encompass the whole world.

Sounds like that romance lives on, to me. Spectacular cloud.

Despite the otherness is a great way to say it. Indeed. Compatibility does not mean joined at the hip and still it means more than friendship. Cool.

I has taken me years to realize this sort of travel , beside, separate, caring more deeply- a sort of sixth sense when it comes to the "other". This poem is so peaceful and your clouds so dreamy- I am very comfortable here...thank you, yet again!
